A construction worker from Local 638 fell from a ladder at Related Companies30 Hudson Yards construction site around 10:15 a.m. on Thursday and was transported to Bellevue Hospital, according to Related and the FDNY.

The worker was alert and went to the hospital for additional evaluation, Related said.

Related’s 30 Hudson Yards project will be the company’s tallest tower on the Far West Side. Kohn Pederson Fox Associates is designing the project.

The City Council passed a law last year requiring construction workers to receive a combination of training courses from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or a 100-hour program that the Department of Buildings approved in response to increased construction-related deaths in recent years. The DOB announced late last year that workers would have until June 1, 2019 to finish at least 30 hours of safety training, extending the prior deadline from Dec. 1.
